New, 3 comments

Most of the team has 2019 ratings for EA Sports flagship game.

FIFA 19 will not be released until September 28, 2018 but the ratings have been coming out for some time. Now the floodgates have opened and a vast majority of the player ratings are out.

Sporting Kansas City fall into that category as well. FUTwiz.com has those numbers but beware, that link will update as EA Sports keeps changing the ratings throughout the year. The only players missing from the list are Kuzain, Graham Smith and Gianluca Busio. Busio is now 16-years-old so I’d expect him to find his way into the game sooner than later.

Below there is a table of all the ratings. ‘2019 Rating’ is the information that just came out. ‘2018 Start’ is the rating from the beginning of last year (which is really towards the end of the 2017 season). And ‘2018 End’ is the most recent ratings from FIFA as of this writing for FIFA 18, which they are still actively updating.

Based on the year-over-year changes from the release of FIFA 18 to the release of FIFA 19 there are some numbers that jump out. The biggest climbers were Daniel Salloi who went up five points from 65 to 70 along with Amer Didic who went from 54 to 59. Next was Ilie Sanchez who jumped four points from 70 to 74. All those feel quite deserved.

A few other nice bumps were Tim Melia up to 74 from 72. Johnny Russell, Graham Zusi, Khiry Shelton and Adrian Zendejas all climbed two points as well.

On the other end the biggest decline was Krisztian Nemeth who went down four from 72 to 68. Nemeth has underperformed so far on his return to MLS but he just got to KC so I’d reserve judgement. Then comes three point drops for both Brad Evans (67 to 64) and Andreu Fontas (78 to 75). Both of these make sense since Fontas switched leagues and FIFA rates players in La Liga higher and of course Evans is always hurt.

Other drops include a two point dip from Yohan Croizet and single point drops for Gerso Fernandes, Jimmy Medranda, Cristian Lobato and Seth Sinovic.

The ratings that feel the most off for me are Diego Rubio (68), Jimmy Medranda (69) and Jaylin Lindsey (61). They all feel a bit low, though I know Rubio only went on his tear lately.

Here is the full table of 2019 ratings as well as the beginning and end of the 2018 ratings with the year-over-year portion reflecting the changes since September 2017’s initial drop.
